The Xume 72mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit from B&H includes one lens adapter and two filter holders to provide quick and easy attachment and removal of two different filters on one lens.

The Xume Lens Adapter and Filter Holder system revolves around both filters and lens' filter rings receiving precision-machined metal rings and then utilizing NdFeB rare Earth magnets to facilitate a secure, but easy to remove, connection between the filter and lens. By using a magnetized, non-threaded connection, the chance of cross-threading or jamming filters onto the lens is eliminated and time is saved when swapping filters.

  • XUME 72mm Lens Adapter

    The Xume 72mm Lens Adapter is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a lens with a 72mm-diameter filter thread to provide instant and secure attachment of filters when Xume Filter Holders are installed. This adapter ring incorporates NdFeB rare Earth magnets into its design to enable a strong, but easy to remove, connection between the lens adapter and filter holder. By using quick-to-remove magnets to attach filters, changing of filters can occur much more quickly and eliminates the chance of cross-threading or jamming when installing or removing filters. The ring is approximately the same thickness as most step-rings and will not cause vignetting on most lenses with focal lengths as wide as 24mm (35mm equivalent). Over-the-lens type lens hoods are still compatible when Xume Adapters and Holders are in place and are recommended during use to provide an even more assured connection if working in busy environments.

    Traditional snap-on lens caps are not directly compatible with Xume lens adapters. To protect the front element of a lens that is not in use, but has a Xume lens adapter installed on it, a Xume filter holder can be first connected to a snap-on lens cap. The combination of a snap-on lens cap and a Xume filter holder can then be placed over the lens instead of a filter with a Xume filter holder. Alternatively, a Xume lens cap designed to cover a correspondingly-sized Xume lens adapter may be used instead.

  • 2 x XUME 72mm Filter Holder

    The Xume 72mm Filter Holder is a precision-machined metal ring that attaches to a 72mm circular screw-in filter to provide instant and secure attachment to lenses when a Xume Lens Adapter is installed. NdFeB rare Earth magnets are integrated within lens adapters to attach to the filter holder to and provide a strong, but easy to remove, connection that is suitable for use with oft-used filters. By using quick-to-remove magnets to attach filters, changing of filters can occur much more quickly and eliminates the chance of cross-threading or jamming when installing or removing filters. The ring is approximately the same thickness as most step-rings and will not cause vignetting on most lenses with focal lengths as wide as 24mm (35mm equivalent). Over-the-lens type lens hoods are still compatible when Xume Adapters and Holders are in place and are recommended during use to provide an even more assured connection if working in busy environments.

72mm Lens Adapter and Filter Holder Starter Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-conceived product. Well-conceived product. I'm hoping to use this system instead of a bulky filter holder system. With the lens ring on, your lens cap won't attach. Xume does not make lens caps except in a few select sizes. I contacted their customer service and they suggested attaching a filter ring to your lens cap, which then will attach magnetically. So, take that into account. Also. I sometimes use a circular polarizer stacked with an ND, so I ordered another set in order to have a lens ring on the CP as well as on the lens. I hope this will not cause vignetting

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It broke after less than a year I really liked the idea of these. Being able to take the filters on and off easily -- just a magnet holding them on, no screwing and unscrewing, which can be fussy and time-consuming. But on a recent shoot, as I was removing my ND filter, the magnet came unglued from the filter holder. So it no longer would hold my ND filter onto the lens. Then I couldn't unscrewing the filter holder, so I couldn't use my ND filter for the rest of the day. These are a nice idea, but they fell apart after a few months of light use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well but vignetting at 24mm I purchased these adapters to use on my SONY RX10M3 camera and there are noticeable dark corners from 24mm to 32mm using a B+W clear slim filter. This of course becomes worse if you stack the filters. If you thread on a clear or UV filter to the lens directly and mount an adapter ring on the outside of the filter, you won't be able to attach the lens cap. Overall, it is a great product that works fast and easy. The only drawbacks are the price and vignetting on wide angle lenses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but not perfect... The obvious advantage and feature to this system is the ease of attachment and removal of filters due to the magnetic nature of the lens adapter ring and filter holder ring. While I am happy with my purchase, I am disappointed in how difficult it was to install the lens adapter ring on my Nikon lens. Yes, I got the correct sizes: 72mm. Filters would screw onto the lens just fine, but the XUME lens adapter ring wouldn't. Eventually I basically had to snap the adapter ring in place. I'm also disappointed the filters can't be stacked while both have the magnetic ring attached UNLESS you remove one magnetic ring from a filter, screw it onto the lens that still has the XUME adapter, then magnetically attach it to the lens. I know that's not a big deal, but the hassle kinda defeats the purpose of having this setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xume adapters save time & frustration in the field Get out & use those ND and polarizing filters! No more feeling for the slippery pinchers on the lens cap. Gone are the days of lining up the threads to screw the filters onto the lens & thereby risking dropping them in the field. Screw the magnetic adapters onto lenses, filters & caps at home; then in the field, you just slap them together. They do not fall off! You have to intentionally pull them apart. Great invention

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnets are just sticky enough. Well done! Initially seemed a little expensive, but I thank my lucky stars I bought the Xume every time I change out my UV filter for my polarizing filter. No more lining up those darn threads! The Xume magnet is just sticky enough. I don't worry about it falling off, yet I can easily trade out filters - instantly. Well done. Now I just need to invest in the system for my other filter sizes, 52mm is next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't someone think of this sooner! I ordered these filter holders with some reluctance. I use a UV filter and circular polarizer regularly on my RX10III but it has always been a real pain to change filters. Sometimes the filter would get stuck and be hard to remove from the lens and often I would put a fingerprint on the filter when changing it. I finally bit the bullet and ordered a 2 filter kit which comes with an adapter that goes permanently on the lens and rings for each of the filters. What a delight this system is! The filter ring is held firmly by magnetism to the lens adapter but is easy to pull off and exchange for the other filter. The attachment is strong enough that it can't fall off accidentally but not so strong that it can't be pulled off for exchange of filters. I don't know if the attachment is strong enough to hold an auxillary lens (I haven't tried it) but it is the perfect solution for filters. In summary, I highly recommend this solution to anyone who has ever struggled with changing filters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It seemed like a good idea. However, when I attach my ten stopper ND filter or for that matter my circular polarizer, I end up with noticeable vignetting. Both the ND filter & polarizing filter are very thin and I don't use a UV filter. So, for my purposes on my a6300 using the 18-105 G lens the lens adapter is not usable.
